There Won’t Be Any Disappointments

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: There are concepts like fairness and bestowal. If I don’t know how to give and bestow materially, can I at least know how it is to bestow spiritually?

Answer: Spirituality and materiality are integrated with each other. If I cannot bestow materially, I will not be able to bestow anything spiritually either. This is because everything is established through desire. It oversees my material activities: I extend my hand, I return my hand, and so forth. It’s the same thing in spirituality. Therefore, in the material world if I harm someone, certainly I am not bringing any benefit in spirituality.

If I will learn to bestow on the physical level, then with this I take a step towards spirituality. However, this doesn’t mean that I enter into the upper world yet because I must be properly organized for this, especially between me and everyone else. And this is what we are teaching humanity.

People can bestow and give to each other, we know about the altruism of individuals and Utopian societies from history, but nothing came from this. In general, clearly this ended in bloodshed because the Light didn’t come among them and disappointments, bitterness, and mutual recriminations came in response to their efforts and expectations. Therefore, it’s necessary to teach people how to unite correctly, and then their movement towards each other will be desirable and will end well.
